A new wrinkle cropped into my searching tonight... I found a couple NEW Cruze Diesel's for only about $1000 more than the low mileage CPOs I was looking at (granted around 8-10 hours away). I also saw some 20k miles CPOs in the $14,000s...

Knowing what you guys know and have experienced with the cars as well as your dealer and Chevy new vehicle purchases what is your opinion at NEW vs CPO with less than 3000 miles? And what about saving $5000 to go with a 20-30k mile CPO.

Technically the new ones have 3/36 B2B warranty and 5/100 powertrain while a CPO has balance of new B2B + 12/12 B2B and the balance of 5/100 powertrain so the CPOs actually have a better warranty... Both new and CPO have 2/24 maintenance included as well.

Any other CPO buyers here, what were your buying experiences and CPO warranty experiences?

Sorry for so many of these type of questions but I am trying to make up my mind about buying a Cruze Diesel or sticking with my old VW TDI until it drops then getting something else later on down the road...

I still just for fun look and from my perspective the quantity of new ones keep getting smaller and smaller I am not sure how they are pricing those. I would speculate there are incentives on new that may not be able to be advertised. I had a brand new 15 last summer in Iowa that listed for 28k and they had it marked down to 20.7k and I waited and it worked out but I waited a long time. I liked the CPO but it really only provides an extra 12 months and 12000 miles and slightly lower interest if u borrow and free service for 2/24k miles. I would either buy new or just find the very best deal on preowned with great service records and no continuous service problems. My 14 Eco 6 speed I hit a deer and had moderate damage and it never showed on a car fax, so I don't know how useful those are. There was no police report, but did turn into insurance for them to pay.

CPO makes more sense on a car like a Mercedes because it adds unlimited mileage. On a Chevy, I don't think that 1/12 really makes a whole lot of difference. For me, if it only amounts to a couple thousand dollars, I would always go new. If you can get CPO for half the price and same warranty, then it starts to make sense.

Every deal is different but if you can find something new in the 20k range I would prolly go new. Just know there are not many new ones left so those choices become smaller with every month that passes. Have not been any new Cruze diesels manufactured since June of 2015
